Application for export to Canada

Just a reminder to commercial blueberry growers in NC who ship to Canada that March 1 is the deadline for participation in the state Blueberry Certification Program.  The blueberry maggot fly (Rhagoletis mendax) is a sporadically-occurring pest of blueberry in North Carolina, and shipment of blueberries to Canada is limited to fruit from fields enrolled in a state certification program administered by the NCDA&CS.  For more information contact Dr. Alonso Suazo, (919) 733 6931, ext.237, or email
